CSV datasource, using and combining

(Matt Sully) #1

Matrix Version: Squiz Matrix v5.3.4.0

I am using a .csv datasource, for my tasks.
I need to try to display it as a look up from mapping.

For example: http://www.exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk/test-area/donate-map?ticket_no=3669
So the gate ticket number is:3669.

This is the records of the datasource.

I have applied the Page contents:

%ds__ticket_no% %ds__problem_type% %ds__donatestatus% %ds__donatedescription% %ds__easting% %ds__northing% %ds__grid_ref% %ds__cost%

How do I go about linking the 2 together?

A very easy question hopefully, as I am new to using Squiz Matrix.

Hi Matt, not sure I understand the requirement. What do you mean when you say “linking the 2 together” ?

Bart Thanks for coming back to me.

I have a CSV datasource. I wish the output to be a webpage with a webmap in it.

and also some information from the .csv file format, shown above. That looks like this

So it takes elements from the .csv file format?

Does that make sense?

Right, that helps, thanks.

So you basically just want to list a single item from the data source list?

I think you are wanting to put the data source keywords (%ds__ticket_no%) in the default type format body copy rather than the page contents, like you have done. Something like this:
